Kuwaiti Ports Public Authority

Kuwaiti Ports Public Authority Last updated on Tuesday 20th April 2010

Even before the discovery of oil, maritime transport has been playing a significant role in the industrial and commercial activities in Kuwait. The population relied on foreign trade and used to own a big fleet of sail-ships cruising the Gulf region and the African and Indian coasts to sell and buy different types of goods.

The increasing process of construction and development required the expansion and management of the Kuwaiti seaports according to the most modern trends. It was then that the need to the establishment of an independent authority emerged with the view to manage, supervise and operate the seaports of Kuwait.

The Kuwaiti Ports Public Authority is an independent government authority managing and operating the commercial ports in Kuwait. At present there are three ports in Kuwait; each offers facilities of open and covered storage areas, cattle and livestock pens and refrigerated storage.
